A photographic exhibition with artists Jacqui Devenney Reed (Donegal), Cormac Coyne (Inis Oirr),and Hwan Jin Jo (Jeju Island, Korea) opens in the gallery at Abby Arts Centre, Ballyshannon, Donegal.
The opening of the exhibition 7pm also marks the official welcome of a group of stone masons from Jeju Island, Korea, and delegates from the Irish Korean Stone Culture Art Exchange 2023 to Donegal for the Féile na gCloch festival this weekend.
Since the dawn of civilisation stone has left clues to our ancestors through carvings, structures, walls and buildings. From burial chambers, and dolmens to mounds of stone atop mountains marking a burial site of a legendary hero, the round towers, holy wells and ornate Celtic tall crosses depicting early Christianity and gateposts, millstones, plaques and sea markers all leaving clues to how our ancestors lived.
Áras Éanna Arts Centre, Inis Oírr, is delighted to commission these exceptional photographers to produce an exhibition celebrating stone.
Their brief for this exhibition was one word ‘Stone’.
Local musicians will perform live music at the arts centre for the launch on Thursday 22 June at 7pm
